"Working together, Future Com and Sipera enable enterprises to satisfy industry security and privacy mandates, benefit from real-time UC collaboration, and secure business critical communications," said Asava.

"By partnering with Sipera, we can better ensure our enterprise customers' communications are compliant with HIPAA, PCI DSS and SOX mandates," said Douglas Hollenshead, CEO & president for Future Com.

"And, given our joint McAfee expertise, we can comprehensively conduct Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing, and deploy integrated UC security and network management systems, in those environments," said Hollenshead.
